Artist of the Moment

Individual achievement


The Art Department regularly recognises the achievements of individual pupils in the Third Form through to the Upper Sixth through the award of the title, ‘Artist of the Moment’. Entries cover a wide range of disciplines, including drawing, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, installation and mixed media.

Head of Art, Alison Escott, said: “The ‘Artist of the Moment’ feature allows us to celebrate the achievements of our pupils with the wider school community and highlights the high standard and breadth of work produced during the course of the academic year.”

This week’s ‘Artist of the Moment’ is Francesca Matthews in the Upper Sixth Form. Francesca is exploring the patisserie as the theme for her A Level coursework project and has recently produced this carefully executed large scale acrylic painting.
